Thanks for all these great pics! Port Aventura looks like such a nice park. I have wanted to ride Dragon Khan ever since I saw pics of it in my "White Knuckle Ride" coaster book years ago... It still is such an awesome coaster to look at.
I love the on-ride pictures! That drop tower looks insane

Okay, quickly moving on to the next update. This will be a music update before my Italian theme parks TR's. Between Spain and Italy, I had to work 3 weeks and during the day after Spain and the day before Italy, I went to 2 music festivals. The first one was Linkerwoofer in Antwerp. A free festival and despite the really bad weather it was quite crowded. My daughters and I went to see only 1 band : De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig. My favorite local band. Well, in fact they are dutch, but we speak the same language , so ...
The day before going to Italy, I went to Laundry Day, Antwerp with a friend. It's a dance festival, originally started as a street party in my favorite shopping street in Antwerp back in 1988, Laundry Day grew to what it is today : 60000 people, 150 dh's, 15 stages. My friend already went a few times to Laundry Day, for me it was my first time since it grew so big as it is today. I had a really awesome day. The music and company were sooooo great. I decided already to go the next edition too and to another dance festival next summer.
Before moving on the pics, some youtube impressions I shot during the 2 days.
De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig
Linkerwoofer : the weather really sucked
It's at the left bank of the river Scheldt
I'm a bit claustrophopic so I could have never ever done what my daughter is about to do here
De Jeugd van Tegenwoord :-)
The rain stopped magically during the concert
They were really awesome.
Time for Laundry Day :-)
It was a really hot day
Circus Brussel, the stage of my favorite radio channel Studio Brussel.
Bling Bling stage, not really my favorite music, but my friend liked it, so I liked it ;-)
15 stages in total
My friend and I :-)
I luv Dr Elektroluv
Schedule of the day
Mmmmmhhhh, Baccardi :-)
Our local hero : REGI !!!!!
Laundry day ....
At midnight, right after the fireworks, the music died, and it started to rain big time. We were TOTALLY soaked when we got to our car, but we didn't mind ... it was such an awesome day :-) :-) :-) :-)
The reason why we drove to Tuscany, was a small themepark called Cavallino Matto. If the park wouldn't have had 4 rollercoasters, we would probably never have gone to this park. But I'm very glad we did because I loved this cute little park.
The hotel we stayed in was just great in daylight. I had a room in one of the separate buildings near the swimming pool
That's the name of the hotel
Main building of the hotel
The views were stunning
Time for our morning park that day : Cavallino Matto
Mike catching up some sleep before the park opened.
The huge park entrance
Guess what this is !
Great kiddie rides
Hans didn't really fit in the train
Hans had problems to get out of the train too.
This was such a great ride. Amazing before it reach over the top of the trees
The train building you saw before, is just the train station
Biggest coaster of the park
Area NO picnic
Go EB !!
Another great ride you don't see very often

CF, don't those colors look great ? Next Up Fiabilandia. In between we were crossing Italy from west to east.
Wow...I have been lurking on these forums for about a year (Hi, my name is Ku, and I'm a chick from the UK. I'm 23) but omg I didn't know anyone else in the world had been to Cavallino Matto - I went there with my folks a few years ago. I even bought a t-shirt. All the credits were RUBBISH.
Woohoo, great pictures B. I always like seeing me on a roller coaster.
^ I thought the coasters were nice. It is all L&T so kind of rare. The two kiddies are not that special but I found the Mouse to be quite smooth and a funny lay out and project one was a good coaster. Not very save, but good.
